After my second child was born, I was always tired and a little out of shape.  I started walking then jogging.  Eventually after about 3 years, I completed 30 5k races, 4 10K races, 2 Marathons 5 Half Marathons, 15 sprint triathlons and 1 Half Iron man.   Changing my eating habits was the most important step that I took.  Beef was a big part of my new eating lifestyle,  it gave me the protein and energy to train and compete.

I’m originally from Iowa and I know the importance of supporting farmer and their products.  This would be a way to show the support farmers deserve and to help promote a healthy lifestyle at the same time.
